Meador out in Lindale

Recommended Posts

Sounds like he set it up so it would be an in house hire, probably has somebody on staff that he thinks deserves the job and waited with the hopes of a simple promotion from within.

it is late, so may be easiest to hire from within unless the administration already has someone in mind.

@Maya_Golden seems to have a lot of info on her Twitter. Indicating Meador is looking for new coaching job and that Lindale will make a hire in 2 weeks.

 

You're right Play action, 2 weeks sounds like a hire from within.

Thank you Coach Meador for your 22 years in Lindale. You have had a positive influence on many students over the years. I've seen you working with students at your church, and many hours outside of your job. You care about students, and the lives they live. You have been a blessing to our community of Lindale. Good luck to you and your family wherever you go.

Totally agree, but a job open for 2 weeks doesn't leave a lot of options.

Meador has served our community well for over 2 decades. It's always hard to see a coach let go, it effects his staff too. But sometimes change is necessary.

 

At least the last 2 head football coaches have come from within. Owens and Meador. But we were having a lot more success back then than we are now.

 

It would be hard to justify letting Coach Meador go only to hire someone from his staff. But the time table isn't favorable for hiring someone from outside the program. Hopefully our administration and school board will get this one right.

 

Wishful thinking, but our superintendents brother is head coach at Carthage. Maybe he can convince one of their coordinators to come over.

Good luck to Meador and all the coaches now looking for work at such a late date. Thinking success in Lindale may be hard on the level they are now competing. Had some fun times watching Lindale when they put up a lot of points. That loss to Dangerfield though was a wow moment.

Appears to me the new basketball coach may have hand in this. Just guessing.

 

Let's not start unsubstantiated rumors. It has never been and never will be some we do on this forum.

I am not in the know, but I coached with Coach Cochran (The DC) at Grace for 2 years. Hard to find a better man. He would be an excellent choice if the promotion rumors are true.

Coach Cochran is an awesome choice! Just wish the deck wasn't stacked against the Eagles so badly.

Look at the film. They can't consistently compete against 5a opponents.

They will benefit from the Big School/Small School 5A split starting in 2018. But you are right, they do not have the kids to consistently compete against the Bigger 5A schools that they have to play every week in that District.

They will definitely benefit from the 5A split. Not sure they'll be winning district championships every year, but should be consistently making the playoffs when the split happens.

Let's stay away from the rumors if we can. A post has been hidden in this thread because of that.
